What Makes a Good Stoner Halloween Costume?

To win the day on Halloween, you want to rock up in a costume easily identifiable as stoner-friendly. There are great weed-themed costumes you can buy which are of a high-end variety, and ones you can make that require a degree of skill, materials, and imagination. At this late stage, however, your best bet is to disguise yourself as a well-known and well-loved character from stoner lore. Movies and television have given us some epic stoner archetypes over the years, and you’ll see a few of these in our list of Halloween costumes for stoners.

You’ll also see one or two more novel ideas for those who like to do something a little different or take the time to get creative. The best part? These are all relatively cheap and cheerful to put together, meaning you don’t have to spend hours preparing your costume.

These costumes are suggested for anyone, regardless of gender, to pay homage to their favourite stoner archetypes on Halloween this year.

Hunter S. Thompson/Raoul Duke

The celebrated author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Rum Diary is a famous figurehead in drug culture, thanks to his books chronicling the mayhem of his own experiences. You’re sure to be a hit in this easy-to-assemble, cooler-than-cool costume.

To nail the Raoul Duke vibe is reasonably simple, but to be recognisable, it’s best to clone the look from Johnny Depp’s portrayal in the Fear and Loathing movie.

You’ll need the following items:

A short-sleeved, Hawaiian-style shirt (any kind will do, no need to search endlessly for a perfect match)

A visor, preferably white, or a white bucket hat

Orange lens sunglasses

A pair of shorts

A cigarette holder (this is, of course, a must)

That’ll pretty much cut it. These are all reasonably easily obtainable items, too. If you want to take it to the next level and carry a fly swatter with you at all times, feel free.

Note: Two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-coloured uppers, downers, screamers, laughers….and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls are not necessary to complete the look.

It’s pretty unlikely you’ll pick any of those things up if you do decide to go door to door with the local kids.

Towelie

Towelie might not be known to everyone, but the perma-stoned South Park character is a good one, albeit a slightly more complex costume to throw together on short notice. If you’re okay with sacrificing some towels or sheets to get the job done, this costume is doable, and anyone can pull it off.

You’ll need the following items:

A large sheet of blue fabric (enough to cover you from head to knees should do it)

Enough white fabric to create the white stripes along the ends and eyes

Enough black fabric to make eyes and a mouth

Fabric glue/Scissors

A red marker to draw the bloodshot lines on the eyes

You wanna get high? Avoid the hassle of trying to make the costume cover your head by cutting a hole in the centre of the towel and slipping your head through the hole. Towelie will then sit happily across your shoulders (think poncho-style), leaving your hands free to smoke weed freely throughout the evening. However, do this before adding the face, so you don’t get the alignment wrong.

Cheech and/or Chong

If you’re going to a party with a buddy or as a couple, you can’t go wrong with Cheech and Chong! The two most recognisable characters of all time in weed lore are simply the kings of cannabis culture. There may have been some great characters since, but you’ll have to go a long way to top the OGs.

Fortunately, dressing the part of either Tommy Chong or Cheech Marin can be as cheap or expensive as you choose to make it. If you’re on a budget, you’ll be able to pick up the necessary evils at a thrift store.

For Cheech, you’ll need the following:

A t-shirt or vest

A bandana

A pair of khakis, or light-coloured trousers

….and don’t forget Cheech’s trademark braces/suspenders. Attach them to the waistband of your trousers and loop them over your shoulders.

For added authenticity, you’ll want a nice bushy black ‘stache. It’s a bit late in the day to grow one, but the good news is that you can pick up a fake online for a few bucks.

To nail the look of Cheech’s partner in high crimes, you’ll want to rock the classic ‘redneck tuxedo’.

For Tommy Chong, the following garments will work:

Blue Jeans

Denim shirt or jacket

Bandana

Round-rimmed glasses

Fake beard and mustache (assuming you’re not already suitably bearded)

Cheech and Chong are instantly recognisable in the stoner community, and these are straightforward costumes to assemble. You’ve probably got everything you need lurking at the back of your wardrobe already; if you don’t, you can always borrow them from Dave. Oh wait – Dave’s not here.

Jay and/or Silent Bob

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes make up the modern-day stoner icons you may have seen in Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, and their own standalone movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Sure, their alter-ego pairing of Bluntman and Chronic is better suited to a weed-themed Halloween Party, but they are a little harder to assemble at this stage in October. Jay and Silent Bob are much easier costumes to put together on short notice, so it’s a bit easier to get these together on time.

For Jay, you’ll need the following:

A beanie hat

A long wig (assuming you’re not already suitably tressed)

A pair of tracksuit pants

Silent Bob requires:

A dark-coloured trenchcoat or overcoat

A baseball cap (worn back to front, of course)

An oversized sweatshirt

Denims

And Bob’s trademark cigarette as a prop

The ZigZag Guy:

Looking for an easy yet novel costume that represents stoner culture? The ZigZag rolling papers pack guy is about as simple as it gets. You can get everything you need for this look in just a couple of clicks from Amazon, so you don’t even have to leave the house!

To nail the ZigZag guy look, all you need is the following:

A red beanie hat

A fake beard (assuming you’re not already suitably bearded)

Any t-shirt with a red collar will add a touch of authenticity

It’s that simple. If you want to score brownie points with the gang, make sure you have a few packs of ZigZags on your person.

The Dude

Ah, one of everybody’s favourite characters from one of stoner lore’s most beloved films. Jeff Bridges achieved legend status with his portrayal of The Dude in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 film, The Big Lebowski, entering the stoner hall of fame with a character that will never be usurped. To be an instant hit at any stoner-themed Halloween party, turning up as The Dude is the way to go. And again, it’s an easy costume to throw together.

All you need is the following:

A dressing gown/bathrobe

An oversized t-shirt

A pair of shorts

A pair of shades

And that’s pretty much it. If you don’t have long hair or a beard, you can pick up a wig and false beard cheap and easy at this time of year. Throw these in to complete the look. They’ll really tie your groom together.

Shaggy

That’s Shaggy from Scooby Doo – not the Boombastic Jamaican-American Reggae singer. Although….

It was never stated in the cartoons that Norville ‘Shaggy’ Rogers was a stoner, but the potheads among us (all of us, then) knew the score. The hippie persona, the love of Scooby snacks (the munchies) and, in one episode, even falling in love with a girl named Mary Jane, it’s evident that the writers were trying to tell us something. It didn’t take the whole gang to figure out this mystery.

You need but two things to dress like Shaggy for your Halloween party. It’s the easiest costume on our list, bar none, and since Scooby Doo has been around since the late 1960s and is still going strong today, it stands to reason that you won’t have to explain who you’ve come dressed as.

All you need is the following:

A green t-shirt – oversized is best

A pair of bell-bottom or flared trousers – preferably brown

And don’t worry – if you’re going to a weed-themed Halloween party, there should be plenty of Scooby Snacks to keep the munchies at bay.

Last-ditch Novel Idea:

If you’re struggling to put something together and can’t find suitable attire to make the costume you were hoping for, a bit of ingenuity goes a long way. You might not win any prizes, but you’ll get points for imagination if nothing else.

Grab a black hooded cloak, a scythe and a skull mask – these are usually ubiquitous in stores until the very last minute – and dress up as Death. Roll a nice big joint and carry it with you at all times.

If anyone asks? Tell them you’re the Grim Reefer.
